Circleville Pumpkin Show
Known as the greatest free show on earth, the Circleville Pumpkin Show began when Mayor George R. Haswell held the first pumpkin show in 1903 to celebrate and showcase local agriculture. In addition to displays of pumpkins and other agricultural crops, the show has grown to include pageants for Miss Pumpkin and Little Miss Pumpkin, as ell as contests for baking, local artwork, rides, seven parades and live concerts and shows. Held the third week of October, the four-day festival draws more than 400,000 visitors annually.
